4th Annual Alternative Fueled Vehicle Roadshow Returns to Georgia
Date: June 17-20 / 23-26, 2014
Location: See schedule below
About the Event: Four years ago, Georgia Public Service Commissioner Tim Echols gathered a few folks together in a room to talk about the benefits of swapping out fuel‐guzzling gas and diesel vehicles for clean, domestically‐ produced fuels like natural gas, propane, electricity and biofuels. Back then, there were only a handful of electric‐ vehicle charging stations in Georgia and almost no natural gas fueling stations. Today the landscape has changed dramatically. As municipal leaders, logistics managers and CFOs look for cost‐saving solutions, clean fuel vehicles are factoring into their decisions. From sanitation trucks and transit vehicles to commuter cars and light trucks, it makes more sense than ever to evaluate alternative fueled vehicles. Utility companies and fueling‐station developers have stepped up to the plate to support vehicle manufacturers. Today, that first small group of pioneers at the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Roadshow has become thousands of supporters.
The Roadshow will be touring Georgia June 17‐26, 2014, stopping at eight (8) cities around the state. Each half‐ day event combines a live outdoor vehicle showcase followed by a two‐hour classroom‐style seminar featuring short presentations by experts from each of the clean fuels and vehicle manufacturers. Utility companies highlight infrastructure development and finance experts detail the ways that capital equipment can be purchased or leased along with other energy efficiency projects. The information that one would typically travel hundreds of miles to see at a multi‐day convention is compacted into one, very relevant, low‐cost seminar in the local community.

National Drive Electric Week (formerly Plug-In Day) 2014
Date: September 15-21, 2014
Location: Atlantic Station in Atlanta, GA
About the Event: National Drive Electric Week, September 15-21, 2014, is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
Started in 2011 as National Plug In Day with the simple idea to hold simultaneous events across the country on the same day, by popular demand we are expanding to an entire week of events and changing the name to emphasize the thing we all want to do: drive electric. We expect National Drive Electric Week 2014 will again grow to include more events in more cities with more drivers reaching out to share the many advantages of driving electric with the public.
